Booked this a few day prior and was contacted the same day to share further details and contact information. I was glad to find out that the driver was in fact able to pick us up from our hotel and not a pickup destination 20 minutes away. The driver-guide was willing to accommodate our requests and was very flexible. I'm glad he was prepared with an umbrella as it rained for the last two stops of our tour.

A fantastic tour to see the attractions of the island. Babu has been a great guide, he has told us the history of the country and placed us in every corner we visited. The temple is wonderful, you breathe peace. The food is very tasty and the car is very comfortable. A 10 !!

The Guide Sandrine was really informative about the whole island and the history of mauritius. I personally enjoyed the black river national park, the lunch and view at le chamarel and the rhumerie the most. Was a great day trip!

We had a wonderful day with lots of nice spots. Our driver Deepak brought us country and people closer to us in a great way. We would book the tour again and again and would recommend it 100%.

An excellent tour taking in the beautiful sights of the south west and combining this with a rum tour and tasting. A very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Would thoroughly recommend.
